My wife and I recently experienced mechanical issues with our 36ft motorhome while traveling in Mississippi. Being from NH and not at all familiar with the area, our campground recommended we contact Lakeshore Automotive. We are extremely thankful for this recommendation as Chris, the owner, and his staff were prompt, courteous, and highly professional. Not only did Chris come to our campground to asses the issue, he was able toorder the parts, contact our insurance company & complete the work within two days, allowing us to continue our travels uninterrupted. Even when unexpected surprises arose (due to prior shoddy workmanship on our motor), Chris & his staff were willing to work well beyond the traditional workday hours to insure we had our motorhome back in time to avoid the cost and inconvenience of a hotel stay.I highly recommend Chris Bermond and his staff at Lakeshore Automotive - we were very fortunate to have been sent in their direction.Rick & Kathy JohnstoneHooksett, NH

Had some car trouble on our spring break, and the staff was so friendly and helpful! They stayed 15 minutes late to fix our car and gave us all sorts of travel recommendations! We could not have gotten luckier!

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
